APPARENTLY, this blog is the only one with updates of what we plant and propagate in the blogosphere.
It is necessary and pragmatic. If I had to publish photos of the whole collection it will

interest in our theme. Or get a picture. Even better search for your needs in the internet. The botanical name will suffice. With it you will find or you need to know about diseases, plant zone, sun/shade/soil/irrigation/propagation issues.
To leave in a critical mode.. I met this fellow from the Sierra Club, a "professor" of biology some time ago. I sent this link with some words about the island epidemic

however, discrete, humble as I am, I keep it to myself. Until the next...
